In Portland, Oregon, ns malt mutter
of the second elms under the Act of Con
gress of Mnrch 3, 1879.
There are still a vast num
ber of vacant lots in St. Johns
yet unadorned by a residence,
and the persistent cry for more
dwellings is continually heard.
A. number of new houses have
boon erected or are under the
course of construction, but
they are practically only a
"drop in the bucket." Work
men arc gotting exceedingly
weary of making the trip morn
ing and evening and in a crowd
ed car to and from distant parts
of tho city. They want to live
in St. Johns with their families,
but they cannot do bo because
there is not a vacant house thai
can bo secured. Owners of va
cant lots hero should make a
Bpecial effort to erect dwellings
tlinrnnn. which houidnH nrnvintr
a profitable investment would bo
a great aid to the community
and especially to workmen ant
their families who are anxious
to call St. Johns their home. If
you have a vacant lot, build
house upon it. and you win lie
doing your bit in a most sub
stantial way. Start right away

An era of shorter work in u
hours in the Northwest has been
ushered in, and it is hoped that
it will remain so for all time to
come. With the shorter hours
thus in force for the workmen
why should it not lie a troot
plan for the local business
houses to also shorten the
hours. In the husinoHH distric
of Portland shorter hours have
prevailed for Homo timo.nnil it i
said that the principal litisi
ncsH houses of Vancouver liav
now adopted six o'clock in th
evening as closing hour, am
night o'clock on Saturday even
trigs, would 11 not no a goot
plan for St. Johns iiiurchautM
to also adopt these hours? Tin
would give the clerks an 01
portunity to get more fresh ai
and have more time to spout
with their ramilies or devoid)
ing their war gardens. And the
proprietors would also fool bene
llted in a hcullhlul way I nun
the shorter hours, and if all the
grocers and and general mer
chandise stores would agree to
the plan, they would bo just as
lar ahead liiiiiueialiy. 1 he work
. a a .a a a
ers getting on earner gtvoH an
opportunity to get their shop
ning done earlier, and so the
longer iiuhiiiois hours are no
longer necessary. Think it over
business men, and keep in Ntuj
with the lentle icy or the Union
All will fuel tho hotter for tho
shorter working hour.
It is Maid that during tlx
noon hour tho other day when
tho band at the I.h.i! hip plant
was playing a patriotic air that
all stood up and removed their
hats but ouu man. A fellow
workman politely removed tho
hat and handed it to tho owner.
who at once placed it upon hit)
head, whereupon some out
knocked tho hat from bin bond,
another tore his number away,
